Blackstone Reserve -  near Ipswich. I'm off to explore the Blackstone Reserve as a potential interesting half day walk suitable for the usual mid-week crew. If you would like to join me, let me know: theprestonhome@gmail.com.
Please note that I have never been there so I have no idea what to expect - I'm confident I won't get lost, but more than that, I can't say. Here's more information: http://www.ipswich.qld.gov.au/about_ipswich/parks_reserves_precincts/parks_search/castle-hill-blackstone-reserve

Numinbah Road to Repeater Station Road, Springbrook - This is another exploratory walk for our Scenic Rim project next year, aimed at connecting well-known sections with not-so-well-known. Apart from being almost entirely uphill,
the terrain is a mystery, so it is only suitable for fit walkers who won't mind a few surprises, eg prickly things and possible scrambles. It has been walked before by others so it is possible to do. If you are interested, please contact Tracy at theprestonhome@gmail.com.

Warrie Circuit and Twin Falls Springbrook National Park - approx 17km walk so a reasonable level of fitness is required, but it is all on track.  From the Tallanbana carpark we will walk down anti-clockwise, approximately 9km down, passing by 2 waterfalls, down to the meeting of the waters on the valley floor - stopping for lunch beside the rock pools.  Then approx 7 kms of continuous steady uphill to join onto Twin Falls circuit.  This is a beautiful hike amongst waterfalls, creeks and rainforest.  Wear good hiking boots as it can be muddy and wet in parts and crossing wet slippery rocks.  You may want to bring poles, not necessary but helpful.  The hike is on a good graded tract.  Bring plenty of water, snack, lunch and insect repellent.

Upper Ballunjui Falls (Lamington NP - Binna Burra) - This 12 km walk should take about 4-5 hrs at a relaxed pace.  We will meet in the Binna Burra carpark at 8:00 am and head out on the Border Track, branching off towards the top of Ballunui Falls.  We will have morning tea there and return the same way, to finish back at the carpark for lunch.

Lower Portals, Mt Barney NP -Walk and swim if you want in rock pools  Leave Cleveland at 6 am.  Meet at Rathdowney at approx 7:30, then on to Lower Portals carpark.  The track leaves fromyjr  car park and ends at a beautiful pool along a gorge on Mount Barney Creek. The walk has moderate to steep gradients, polls would be useful.  Approx. 4 kms into the pools, it is on track with lots of ups and downs, steps and tree roots, and a few creek crossings. This will be at a leisurely pace.  There is the option to swim and rock hop at the lower portals rock pool, where we will have our lunch.  Return va the same track back to cars.  It can get hot on the track, so bring 2.5-3 ltrs water, and all the usual day walk gear, snacks and lunch..   Amanda Fichna 0409 917 401

Bayview Conservation Park This is another lovely walk at Bayview Conservation Park on German Church Road, Mount Cotton.  We will meet at the end of German Church Road (not the carpark) follow the road to the very end and park.  Meeting time is 8:30am.  The walk is 8.6km and will take about 2 1/2 hours to complete.  It follows a variety of fire trails and narrow tracks.  This is a share course with Mountain Bikes, but being the middle of the week I anticipate we should have the track to ourselves.  Please bring poles, water, insect repellent, hat and snacks for morning tea which we will have along the track."

Our annual Ratatat camp is on again - This is a wonderful walk from O'Reillys to the campsite via some of the Border Track and a lot of ups and downs along the main ridge along the escarpment. We camp in a treed hollow full of glow worms.
If you are interested, please email Tracy Ryan on theprestonhome@gmail.com. Spaces are very limited as it is a tiny campsite.
